Failure Is A Setback
I am a failure. A few weeks ago, I started a new content writing internship. Missed deadlines left and right. Today I worked on an article all day, added the external links, and now it’s gone. I want to cry. I quickly e-mailed my editor, and I rewrote the article again. Mistakes happen. Life happens, and it’s okay to admit when you mess up. I also feel like I can’t put a sentence together. My usual trick of telling myself to write badly doesn’t help.
a Usually, the freedom of editing helps me get words on the page. You can always fix it later. I can move forward, never be late again, and learn from my mistakes. Easy enough, but when you feel like you are drowning, it’s a different story.
Take A Breather
I will probably take a breather for a few hours and relax. Read a book and curl up in my Disney princess blanket. I always prepare myself for the worst scenario. My counselor has told me that this doesn’t help anyone. I agree to an extent. You spend time stressing for no reason. The other side is that the worst-case scenario, I saw it coming. It’s like bracing yourself for a punch.
Coming Up For Air
Things will get better. Giving myself a few days and writing in sections might be the best route. There are moments in life when you’ll lose confidence in your abilities. That’s okay. You can continuously improve and learn from other people. Everyone has their own experiences that they can use to teach others. You don’t know anything if you don’t ask for help. It’s hard to do because you don’t want to look incompetent. Good communication will get you everywhere in life. It takes a strong person to ask for help, but it will go a long way.
